London, Nov 26 (IANS) Filmmaker Woody Allen says he will not adapt any other writer’s work for the big screen because he doesn’t enjoy doing that.
Allen writes and directs his own films and is known for completing at least one movie every year. He is now adamant he would never hire a screenwriter, reports contactmusic.com.
‘I’m essentially a writer. That’s what I do. I like to write and I only direct because I want to get my vision as a writer onto the screen. The fun for me is creating the thing. It would not be fun for me to take someone else’s script and direct it,’ Allen said.
‘I’m a writer who directs things for survival, so I don’t turn it over to someone else and then think, ‘Oh my god, he’s gotten everything wrong and he’s doing a bad job and they cast the wrong people’,’ he added.
